HPE GreenLake Has Put Partners In Pole Position To ‘Win’ Everything-As-A-Service Race: Channel Chief George Hope
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Global Channel Chief George Hope says the GreenLake on-premises cloud has given partners a pole position to win the everything-as-a-service channel race.
Look For ‘Much More’ HPE GreenLake Lead-Generation, Co-Selling: HPE GreenLake GM Keith White
Hewlett Packard Enterprise GreenLake General Manager Keith White says partners can expect “much more” lead generation and co-selling as HPE accelerates its edge to cloud platform as a service sales charge.
10 HPE GreenLake Game Changers From HPE Discover 2021
HPE unleashed a blizzard of on-premises cloud native services innovation at HPE Discover including Silicon On Demand, the HPE GreenLake Lighthouse platform for delivering multiple cloud services and the Project Aurora zero trust architecture for GreenLake.
CEO Antonio Neri: 10 Boldest Statements From HPE Discover 2021
HPE CEO Antonio Neri told reporters in a pre-Discover press conference that HPE has built up ‘years of differentiation’ in the on-premises cloud services market with GreenLake that will be difficult for competitors to match.
HPE Is Eyeing More GreenLake Managed Services Opportunities For Partners
‘We are starting to pilot with partners a program where they don’t even have to buy the entire GreenLake experience,’ says HPE Global Channel Chief George Hope. ‘You can buy pieces of it. Then they can add their services to it to make it a more complete solution.’
HPE Will Have ‘Highest Profitability Of Any Of The Cloud Services’: HPE GreenLake Partner Pledge
‘We are going to continue to make sure that GreenLake provides partners with the highest profitability of any of the cloud services that are out there,’ says White in an interview with CRN. ‘So we want to continue to invent. We want to continue to partner. We want to continue to co-sell and really drive leads, drive incentives and drive capabilities through that ecosystem.’
The official answer to that question is simple. UNIX® is any operating system descended from that original Bell Labs software developed by Thompson, Ritchie et al in 1969 and bearing a licence from Bell Labs or its successor organisations in ownership of the UNIX® name. Thus, for example, HP-UX as shipped on Hewlett Packard’s enterprise machinery is one of several commercially available UNIXes, while the Ubuntu Linux distribution on which this is being written is not.
The real answer is considerably less clear, and depends upon how much you view UNIX as an ecosystem and how much instead depends upon heritage or specification compliance, and even the user experience. Names such as GNU, Linux, BSD, and MINIX enter the fray, and you could be forgiven for asking: would the real UNIX please stand up?In the beginning, it was a relatively contiguous story. The Bell Labs team produced UNIX, and it was used internally by them and eventually released as source to interested organisations such as universities who ran it for themselves. A legal ruling from the 1950s precluded AT&T and its subsidiaries such as Bell Labs from selling software, so this was without charge. Those universities would take their UNIX version 4 or 5 tapes and install it on their DEC minicomputer, and in the manner of programmers everywhere would write their own extensions and improvements to fit their needs. The University of California did this to such an extent that by the late 1970s they had released it as their own distribution, the so-called Berkeley Software Distribution, or BSD. It still contained some of the original UNIX code so was still technically a UNIX, but was a significant departure from that codebase.
UNIX had by then become a significant business proposition for AT&T, owners of Bell Labs, and by extension a piece of commercial software that attracted hefty licence fees once Bell Labs was freed from its court-imposed obligations. This in turn led to developers seeking to break away from their monopoly, among them Richard Stallman whose GNU project started in 1983 had the aim of producing an entirely open-source UNIX-compatible operating system. Its name is a recursive acronym, “Gnu’s Not UNIX“, which states categorically its position with respect to the Bell Labs original, but provides many software components which, while they might not be UNIX as such, are certainly a lot like it. By the end of the 1980s it had been joined in the open-source camp by BSD Net/1 and its descendants newly freed from legacy UNIX code.
In the closing years of the 1980s Andrew S. Tanenbaum, an academic at a Dutch university, wrote a book: “Operating Systems: Design and Implementation“. It contained as its teaching example a UNIX-like operating system called MINIX, which was widely adopted in universities and by enthusiasts as an accessible alternative to UNIX that would run on inexpensive desktop microcomputers such as i386 PCs or 68000-based Commodore Amigas and Atari STs. Among those enthusiasts in 1991 was a University of Helsinki student, Linus Torvalds, who having become dissatisfied with MINIX’s kernel set about writing his own. The result which was eventually released as Linux soon outgrew its MINIX roots and was combined with components of the GNU project instead of GNU’s own HURD kernel to produce the GNU/Linux operating system that many of us use today.
So, here we are in 2019, and despite a few lesser known operating systems and some bumps in the road such as Caldera Systems’ attempted legal attack on Linux in 2003, we have three broad groupings in the mainstream UNIX-like arena. There is “real” closed-source UNIX® such as IBM AIX, Solaris, or HP-UX, there is “Has roots in UNIX” such as the BSD family including MacOS, and there is “Definitely not UNIX but really similar to it” such as the GNU/Linux family of distributions. In terms of what they are capable of, there is less distinction between them than vendors would have you believe unless you are fond of splitting operating-system hairs. Indeed even users of the closed-source variants will frequently find themselves running open-source code from GNU and other origins.
At 50 years old then, the broader UNIX-like ecosystem which we’ll take to include the likes of GNU/Linux and BSD is in great shape. At our level it’s not worth worrying too much about which is the “real” UNIX, because all of these projects have benefitted greatly from the five decades of collective development. But it does raise an interesting question: what about the next five decades? Can a solution for timesharing on a 1960s minicomputer continue to adapt for the hardware and demands of mid-21st-century computing? Our guess is that it will, not in that your UNIX clone in twenty years will be identical to the one you have now, but the things that have kept it relevant for 50 years will continue to do so for the forseeable future. We are using UNIX and its clones at 50 because they have proved versatile enough to evolve to fit the needs of each successive generation, and it’s not unreasonable to expect this to continue. We look forward to seeing the directions it takes.
As always, the comments are open.
It was standing-room only in Las Vegas for Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co.’s chief executive officer, Antonio Neri, as he gave the keynote to kick off the accurate HPE Discover event.
The energy in the room was high, as 8,000 attendees celebrated being back together for the first time in three years and Neri (pictured) declared HPE GreenLake’s victory in the cloud.
“HPE GreenLake has emerged as the go-to destination for hybrid cloud, and our industry-leading catalog of cloud services enables organizations to drive data-first modernization for all their workloads across edge to cloud,” he said.
It’s true that the star of Discover 2022 was HPE GreenLake, as the edge-to-cloud platform dominated the spotlight with a slew of new cloud services and impressive revenue figures. However, there was other news happening that may have slipped under the radar of the casual tech press.
TheCUBE’s industry analysts, including Dave Vellante, John Furrier and Lisa Martin were busy throughout the event, welcoming industry experts to theCUBE’s livestreaming studio and covering all the breaking news.
In case you missed HPE Discover 2022, here are theCUBE’s top three takeaways from the event:
HPE’s competition was a recurring subject during theCUBE’s coverage, including rising data warehousing company Snowflake Inc.
“There’s no reason [HPE] shouldn’t be able to do a deal with Snowflake,” Vellante said during theCUBE wrap-up analysis of day one at HPE Discover.
HPE should consider a deal with Snowflake to bolster its data platform, according to Vellante. But, whether a Snowflake deal would work or not, theCUBE’s panel of industry analysts agreed that the main strategic move HPE needs to make right now is to build its partner ecosystem.
“If you look under the covers, it’s weak,” Furrier said. “They don’t have enough software juice.”
HPE has been working to build its marketplace, which currently has over 80 partners and independent service vendors, according to Vishal Lall, general manager for HPE Software and GreenLake Cloud Solutions, during an interview with theCUBE.
“Having a broad marketplace provides a pull for the platform,” Lall said. “It’s a chicken and egg.”
HPE already has some high-profile partners, including “coopetitors” Amazon Web Services Inc. and Microsoft, which were first-time gold-level sponsors of this year’s HPE Discover. This shows HPE is already working toward creating a more integrated, matured cloud ecosystem.
“The hyperscalers are all here at the conference … we need to create that unified model together,” said Scott Wiest, North America chief technologist at HPE.
Weist and VMware Inc.’s vice president, David McGraw, talked with theCUBE’s analysts in one of several interviews theCUBE conducted with HPE partners during Discover 2022. VMware is working with HPE to create a common cloud operating model to abstract away the complexity customers are facing in a hybrid and multicloud environment.
Also joining theCUBE to discuss the benefits of partnering with HPE were Veeam Software Inc.’s David Harvey, vice president for strategic alliances, and Danny Allan, chief technology officer. Veeam has been working with HPE on backup and disaster recovery solutions for over a decade and provides modern data protection services on HPE GreenLake.
“What we are excited about is the continuation of the movement of the customers’ buying patterns in line with HPE’s portfolio and that of Veeam,” Harvey said.
If HPE builds out its ecosystem with software partners, it can leverage its existing install base and understanding of plug-and-play interoperability to build up its software street cred, according to theCUBE’s analysts. This, in turn, will build value for the company, as the relationship between ecosystem and marketplace is a symbiotic one.
“The ecosystem is the key for them, because that’s how they’re gonna fill the gaps,” Vellante said.
Here’s theCUBE’s complete analyst panel session from day one, part of theCUBE’s coverage of HPE Discover 2022:
While HPE Discover wasn’t all about HPE GreenLake, the cloud-to-edge platform was the main attraction. So any recap must touch on its significance to HPE’s future strategy. That GreenLake is cementing HPE’s position as a leader in hybrid and multicloud seems to be undisputed, but the big question was around if HPE GreenLake is cloud, as HPE claims.
“Everything is an as-a-service experience from the moment you log through the HP GreenLake platform to all of the cloud services we offer,” Neri told Vellante in an interview with theCUBE.
However, the platform can’t (as yet) run Snowflake Data Cloud, Mongo Atlas or Databricks, Vellante pointed out.
“But that’s OK,” he said, acknowledging that HPE is referring to operating experience when assessing HPE GreenLake’s cloud capabilities. And that’s what counts, according to Matt Eastwood, senior vice president of infrastructure and cloud at International Data Corp.
“What HPE is doing is cloud, because it’s really about how you present the services and how you allow customers to engage with the platform,” Eastwood told theCUBE.
Neri may be claiming victory, and industry analysts agree that HPE’s long-term cloud strategy is sound, but the company’s short-term cloud operating model still needs work, according to panelists who appeared on theCUBE.
“[Their] cloud-to-edge operating model is the number one thing that they need to nail,” Furrier said. “If they nail that right, they will have a pole position that they could accelerate on.”
At the end of the day, HPE must remember that customers have alternatives, according to Furrier.
“They can move faster to get the value that they need to solve their serious problems, like cybersecurity, like scalable infrastructure, like infrastructure as code, like DataOps, like AIOps,” he said. “It’s all coming really fast. Can GreenLake carry the day?”
Yes, according to Neri. Now that GreenLake is established, what comes next is “how we innovate on the platform at the pace that customers are demanding,” he stated.
Here’s theCUBE’s complete video interview with Antonio Neri:
Managing hybrid cloud workloads with HPE GreenLake may be practical news for enterprises, but HPE has also been investing in a much more exciting field – the confluence of quantum technology, high-speed supercomputing and artificial intelligence.
At the end of May, the company’s Frontier supercomputer broke the exascale speed barrier by achieving a processor speed of 1.1 quintillion floating point operations per second (1.1 exaFLOPS). HPE’s work fulfilling the need for speed is an awesome achievement on its own, but what counts are the implications for researchers to model quantum simulations without the need for quantum hardware, according to Justin Hotard, HPE’s executive vice president and general manager for high-performance computing and artificial intelligence, who stopped by theCUBE during HPE Discover.
“If you think about a lot of traditional computing industry, you always have to wait for the hardware to be there to write and test the application,” Hotard said. “With quantum, what’s interesting is you can model and make progress on the software. And then as the hardware becomes available, optimize it.”
Use-case scenarios Frontier can start work on today include creating more accurate Earth models for climate science, modeling the electric grid to make it more resilient, and progressing cancer and other medical research. But HPC has another major benefit: It’s green.
“We’re doing a ton more computation at far lesser power,” Hotard said.
This is important, because if HPC systems scaled their power consumption alongside processor speeds, they would use impractical levels of energy.
Can we look forward to an era where today’s hybrid cloud and edge computing announcements seem as far in HPE’s past as punch cards and cathode tubes do today? It’s possible that at HPE Discover 2032, the big announcements will be around quantum and AI solving problems in ways that we have yet to imagine.

The UK's top vendor channel bosses have laid out their priorities and future bets in CRN's inaugural Vendor Power list.
The feature encompasses Q&As with 34 UK leaders from the channel's most widely carried vendors, including Microsoft, Cisco and HPE.
Collectively, they head up partner organisations that orchestrate the lion's share of UK B2B IT hardware, software and cloud sales.
Big guns get a grilling
Each channel leader took on up to 18 questions on their partner strategy and themselves, including on their priorities for the year ahead.
In his Q&A, Dell vice president UK channel Rob Tomlin cited accelerating collaboration between channel partners and Dell's sales team among his targets for the next 12 months. The hardware giant has doubled its channel business over the last three years, he claimed.
HPE's UK channel & MM/SMB director, Lewis Simmonds, is targeting the recruitment of more XaaS partners, while HP's UK & Ireland channel director Neil MacDonald unveiled plans to invest in data and insights. Lenovo recently moved to provide partners easier access to its full portfolio, its UK boss Neil Sawyer (pictured below) said, meanwhile.
The vendor chiefs were each asked to outline their channel philosophy and the size of their partner base.
While ConnectWise (2,500), Cisco (2,000), Fujitsu (1,500), Adobe (1,400) and SonicWall (1,200) all work with over 1,000 UK partners, others have narrower UK channels, with Check Point, F5 Networks and Mitel all working with 400 or fewer partners.
Rare metals losing their lustre?
Amid talk that traditional metal-based channel programmes are losing their shine in an increasingly cloud-based world (with Microsoft's Gold badge about to be axed), our top channel bosses were also quizzed on how they see channel programmes and engagement models evolving over the next few years.
SAP's new PartnerEdge Cloud Choice model rewards partners for delivering good outcomes for clients, SAP UK & Ireland chief partner officer Celine Cazali stressed.
Simon Aldous, director, partners & channels, Google Cloud UK&I, was among those to stress the need to reward non-transactional partners.
"The detachment of the influence chain from the transaction chain is an important consequence of the move to cloud. As such, we need to ensure that we view each separately and provide the necessary levels of enablement, incentives, rewards and support for partners across these two critical areas of customer engagement and experience," Aldous said.
"In the cloud consumption world, you need to have a partner base that can drive continuous engagement with the customer. It's so much easier to switch out technologies in a cloud ecosystem, so channel programmes should evolve to incentivise partners to sustain those continuous touchpoints," added Andy Corcoran, UK and Ireland channel sales director at VMware.
How important is the channel to these vendors?
While many of the smaller vendors included stressed that they operate a channel-only model, even those market giants with a strong enterprise and government pedigree often count partners as their primary route to market.
Lenovo's Sawyer said 97 per cent of the PC vendor's business goes via its channel partners, with Cisco and HP's channel leaders pegging their channel businesses at above 90 per cent of their sales.
"[That is] reflective of the UK & Ireland market," confirmed Cisco's Dominic Pierce (pictured below).
The execs opened up on how they manage direct-vs-channel conflict when it occurs, with Broadcom's Roy Borden revealing the vendor has a "100 per cent neutral" compensation scheme for sales reps no matter whose paper the deal is deliver on.
"Within the SMB space, we have moved the full product lifecycle under our Aggregation 2.0 partners. From quote through to level 1 support, this is 100 per cent channel owned and delivered," he added.
We also asked the vendor leaders to open up on what traits they most value and scorn in partners.
Loyalty, integrity and innovation were three recurring positive characteristics, while laziness and duplicity were cited as common bugbears.
"It can be frustrating when a partner backs several competing vendors in the same opportunity," said Tom Corrigan, director, EMEA distribution and systems integrators at Mimecast.
"Unfortunately, we still see some partners wanting to do account mapping. That's outdated. From experience I can say it's much more effective to sit down and use and share data and insights and work out who we should target together with that shared knowledge," added HPE's Simmonds.
The 34 leaders in our Vendor Power list were selected on the basis of the inclusion of their company in the accurate CRN Vendor Report, which rated the channel's most prevalent vendors across four core categories.* CRN Essential subscribers can read an Executive Summary of the report here.
Find out who made our inaugural Vendor Power List here.
CRN, the media brand of The Channel Company, is the No. 1 trusted source for IT channel news, analysis and insight. In our effort to earn and keep that trust, the guidelines below, adapted from the American Society of Business Press Editors’ Guide to Best Practices in B2B Journalist Ethics, The Society Of Professional Journalists Code Of Ethics and The Poynter Institute Codes of Ethics and Conduct, outline the standards we follow as a journalistic outlet.
The editors of CRN, whether working online or in print, strive to maintain editorial excellence and the trust of the IT channel community through dedication to the core journalistic principles of accuracy, fairness and balance, and business practices that clearly separate editorial from the sales portion of our company.
- Take responsibility for the accuracy of their work, verify information before releasing it and use original sources whenever possible.
- Identify sources clearly.
- Use on-the-record sources wherever possible. We reserve anonymity only for trusted sources who may face retribution or other harm and have information that is pertinent to the news value of the story.
- Contact subjects of news stories ahead of publication to allow them to respond to criticism or allegations of wrongdoing.
- Avoid undercover or other surreptitious methods of gathering information unless traditional, open methods will not yield information vital to our readership.
- Do not deliberately distort facts or context.
-Do not plagiarize and always attribute their sources.
We strive to ensure that what we publish is accurate and true to the facts. We also aim to be inclusive in our coverage so that we reflect a wide range of perspectives and experiences. We maintain high standards of reporting, writing and editing to produce work that is as error-free as possible. When we do make mistakes, we acknowledge and correct factual errors as quickly as possible.
Fairness and Balance
We strive to be fair and balanced in what we publish and in the ways in which we interact with subjects and consumers of our coverage. We do our best to acknowledge relevant points of view and represent them in an even-handed way. We reach out to the subjects we cover for comment. We provide accessible ways to challenge us (a phone call or email to the author of the story is the preferred starting point), and we respond promptly.
The CRN editorial staff makes final editorial decisions. In all ways, our editorial coverage is based primarily on reader needs in the view of our editors.
I. Conflicts of Interest
A. Contacts with Advertisers and Advertising Sales Staff
CRN editors do not solicit advertising. If they do accompany The Channel Company ad sales personnel on calls or meetings, it is done with the understanding that the meeting will not result in preferential editorial treatment. Wherever possible, meetings that include sales personnel and editorial staff from The Channel Company are separated into “editorial” and “business” segments. Sales personnel do not participate in editorial segments and vice versa.
Editors may refer potential advertisers to ad sales staff and consult with ad sales staff on story ideas. Conversely, ad sales staff may provide editorial contact information to advertisers. In no case will a non-editorial employee of The Channel Company certain editorial coverage of an advertiser’s products or services. All final decisions about editorial content rest with the editorial staff, while final decisions about advertising sales rest with advertising sales staff.
If advertisers recommend story ideas or leads, editors will make an independent judgment about possible usage based on analysis of reader needs.
B. Treatment of Advertisers, Public Relations Personnel and Sources
Favorable editorial coverage or preferential treatment in an article never hinges on the prospect of ad sales, financial gain or other factors that are not related to editorial integrity.
CRN does not allow non-editorial personnel, public relations representatives or sources to preview an unpublished article. Exceptions—allowed to ensure the technical accuracy of material—include previews for experts, editorial advisory board members, or other sources who will receive no benefit from the article. However, when a source or a company is referred to in an article in which they participated, it is acceptable for the editor, solely at the editor’s discretion, to review direct quotes with the source of those quotes or that source’s representative for accuracy and clarity.
CRN does not trade advertising for editorial or editorial for advertising.
Public relations personnel may be asked to help arrange contacts with key sources. When an article idea originates in a public relations department, editors will seek more details from this and other sources.
When additional interviews are needed, public relations practitioners may help make appointments and advise editors on appropriate personnel with whom to speak. To avoid undue influence on the interview subject, however, editors discourage participation of public relations personnel in the genuine interview. We do not allow public relations personnel to attend interviews with sources they do not represent (i.e., a technology vendor’s public relations representative may not participate in an interview between CRN and a channel partner of that technology vendor).
C. Gifts to Editors
In general, our editors do not seek or accept gifts of value from editorial information sources, advertisers or prospective advertisers, public relations personnel, or agents acting on behalf of these parties.
Modest, souvenir-type gifts commonly given out at press affairs or conferences or distributed to large groups of editors or individual editors during traditional gift-giving seasons are generally acceptable.
Modest gifts sent to journalists at a large number of editorial outlets are generally acceptable.
Money or lavish gifts are not acceptable.
The Channel Company or a CRN editor pays for transportation, lodging, entertainment and personal expenses incurred in connection with editorial coverage whenever possible, with the following exceptions:
Junkets: In the case of group press affairs attended by editors from more than one publication we may, at our discretion, accept reimbursement of travel expenses if the offer to pay expenses is extended by the source to all editorial participants.
Speaking Engagements: Editors may, at our discretion, accept reimbursement of travel expenses for speaking engagements that are sanctioned by The Channel Company and are a direct part of the editor’s job.
E. Outside Activities of Editorial Staff
The lives of editors outside the workplace can also reflect on their professional lives and on CRN. Here are several areas where we take care to avoid conflicts of interest, or the appearance of conflicts:
Other Employment: Editors do not write, work, consult for or otherwise contribute to any venture owned or affiliated with advertisers, potential advertisers or sources, except as permitted by established and authorized business relationships. Any freelance work must be pre-approved by The Channel Company. Editors shall not hold other non-journalism positions that could represent a conflict of interest with an editorial position.
Investing: Editors do not invest in, or hold stock of, any company that they will cover or be likely to cover, with the exception of investments held in a mutual fund or a 401(k) plan, or in similar plans that benefit the editor and other group members, and over which the editor does not control sales of individual stocks or other financial functions by which they might gain personally.
Political, Community and Business Activities: Editors are free to participate in civic, political, business or religious activities that do not present a conflict with coverage or do not lead to a compromise of trust or respect for CRN or The Channel Company.
II. Standards for Editorial Operations
A. Anonymous Sources
CRN editors wherever possible utilize on-the-record, identified sources except in cases where it is necessary to protect a source from the repercussions of speaking to the editor. If cited anonymously, we use the most complete and accurate description of the source possible without compromising the identity of the source.
When anonymous sources are used, top editors may request the identity of such sources if that is deemed necessary to ensure the journalistic integrity of the piece. We do not share the identity of anonymous sources outside the editorial team.
B. Feedback Mechanisms
CRN editors are accessible to the IT channel community through a variety of ways, including telephone, email and social media. Contacts for editors may be found by clicking on their bylines in stories or via the Meet the Editors page on CRN.com.
Sources with sensitive or confidential information, documents or data to share with the editors of CRN can send it to our encrypted inbox at CRNnews@protonmail.com.
Corrections, clarifications and retractions will be made online and/or printed in the next available issue.
C. Hypertext Links
Hypertext links used in editorial content are placed at the discretion and approval of editors.
CRN does not sell contextual links within editorial content.
III. Single-Sponsored Issues, Special Advertising Sections and Supplements
A. Single-Sponsored Issues
In the case of an advertiser sponsoring an entire issue (or “Special Issue”) of CRN, the content remains under the full control of the editorial staff and is subject to all of our ethics rules and guidelines. Editors may, at our discretion, consult with the advertiser on the focus and direction of the content, but all decisions are made fully and finally by the editorial staff.
B. Special Advertising Sections or Supplements
CRN separates advertising from editorial content. Special ad sections, supplements and paid content are labeled as “advertising,” “advertisement,” “sponsored by,” “sponsored content,” or a similar designation.
Senior-level editors may work with sales personnel to ensure that no conflict exists between the advertiser-sponsored content and editorial content. Editors may suggest Topics to the sales staff but will not communicate directly with the sponsor.
CRN editors do not write special advertising sections or supplements.
IV. Conferences and Trade Shows
CRN editors attend and cover conferences, trade shows and other events hosted by The Channel Company and sponsored by advertisers.
A. Editorial Duties
At Channel Company-hosted conferences and trade shows, CRN’s primary duty is to collect news, learn about industry trends, attend press conferences and program sessions, create articles and other content, and meet with editorial sources. We take caution not to provide preferential editorial coverage to advertisers and sponsors.

Picking out the best Chromebook isn't easy with so many great models on the market at the moment, but we'd say the HP Pro C640 Chromebook and the Asus C523 Chromebook definitely qualify. They're both fantastic laptops, but for different reasons.
Here we're going to outline exactly what you can expect from the HP Pro C640 Chromebook and the Asus C523 Chromebook if you decide that either of these Chromebooks is the one for you, which should make your buying decision a little easier.
As you would expect from two of the best laptops on the market, they both score highly in a lot of the key categories that matter – but we'll explain how they stack up in a head-to-head comparison so you can figure out which one is the right one for you.
The premium HP Pro C640 Chromebook is marketed very much as a business laptop, and it has a definite business-like air to it as well: this is a Chromebook that definitely... means business, as it were. You can see it in its clear and distinct lines, and in its unfussy aesthetic, and in the use of plain and neutral colours throughout the design. It's not an ugly laptop at all, but nor is it a particular innovative one as far as looks are concerned.
The HP Pro C640 Chromebook comes carrying a 14-inch display that you can configure with a variety of different resolutions: either 1366 x 768 pixels or 1920 x 1080 pixels, and either touch enabled or non-touch enabled. The bezels on the left and right are pleasingly thin, with a bit more chunkiness at the top and bottom to make room for the webcam and the obligatory HP logo respectively.
With a solid build quality and a smooth aluminium, it's a laptop that's going to last you, though the display can't flip over into a tent or tablet mode like the screens on some Chromebooks can. The port selection is good as well: you get a micro SD card reader, two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports and an HDMI 1.4 out socket for powering an external screen, as well as a 3.5 mm combination mic/headphone jack.
Turning to the Asus C523 Chromebook and this is much more of a value-for-money proposition, which is reflected in the design of the laptop. It's hardly a bad-looking or flimsy Chromebook, but it does come across as a bit cheaper, as you would expect given the price it's selling for. That said, the display bezels are nice and thin at the sides of the screen, and it's only above and below the display where the bezels get seriously chunky – thicker than they would be on a top-tier laptop.
The Asus C523 Chromebook actually has a bigger display than the HP Pro C640 Chromebook, measuring 15.6 inches corner to corner and running at a resolution of either 1366 x 768 pixels or 1920 x 1080 pixels, depending on your needs and your budget. As with the HP Chromebook that we're comparing the Asus model to, you can buy it with or without touch support for the display.
You just get the standard laptop form factor with the Asus C523 Chromebook, so no folding over into a tablet or tent-like shape with this laptop, and as far as ports goes you've got a micro SD card slot, two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, and a 3.5 mm jack that can take either a microphone or a pair of headphones (or both, if you've got a headset). It doesn't have the HDMI out of the HP laptop, but you can use one of the USB-C ports to run an external display, if you need to.
It's really in the specs that the differences between the HP Pro C640 Chromebook and the Asus C523 Chromebook start to appear, and where the relative prices start to make sense. You don't need much in the way of performance to run Chrome OS and Android apps of course, but more power helps when you're dealing with multiple browser tabs and multiple different apps at the same time.
You can configure the HP Pro C640 Chromebook with a wide range of internal components – this flexibility is actually one of the best features of the laptop. At the top end of the scale when it comes to price and performance, you can get it configured with a 10th-gen Intel Core i7-10610U processor, together with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. If your needs and budget are more modest then you can scale that back considerably.
You're still going to be running the same Chrome OS software at the end of the day, but when you think about opening up some of the more advanced websites out there, and running some of the more demanding Android apps and games – not to mention having enough oomph to keep an external display running smoothly – it makes sense to go for as much internal power as you're able to afford.
The Asus C523 Chromebook doesn't offer the same level of power and performance, and has fewer configuration options overall. The best you can do here is an Intel Celeron N3350 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of internal storage (you can knock that storage all the way down to 16GB if you really don't need much of it and want to save yourself some cash).
The laptop will of course still run Chrome OS perfectly well, but you might be waiting a little longer for pages to load and for specific objects to be rendered compared with the HP laptop. It's worth figuring out exactly what you think you're doing to be doing with your Chromebook before making a purchase, and in particular how much multitasking you want to be doing in terms of opening a lot of sites and apps at the same time.
Chromebooks are built to offer lightweight computing experiences with a lot of the heavy lifting done on the web, but if you think that you might need some extra performance then it's worth considering the more advanced configuration options available on the HP laptop – though you should also bear in mind that the HP Pro C640 Chromebook is also available with some more modest internal components as well, if that suits you better.
There's no doubt that both the HP Pro C640 Chromebook and the Asus C523 Chromebook are two of the best Chromebooks around at the moment, but they're approaching the market from different directions: the HP model is all about that high performance and business appeal, while the Asus model is more concerned with helping you get as much Chromebook as you possibly can for your money.
If you think you're going to need some high-end specs inside your laptop – an i7 processor from Intel, say – then the HP Pro C640 Chromebook may well be the one to go for. It supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 speeds, and has an HDMI out port for easy connection to a TV or a monitor, and it features nice touches such as an integrated privacy slider for physically covering up the webcam, as well as an optional fingerprint sensor for logging in.
On the other hand there's the Asus C523 Chromebook, with that epic 15.6-inch screen. The available resolutions aren't any higher than they are with the HP laptop, so you won't be able to fit any more on screen, but everything that is on screen will be just that little bit bigger. For sitting back and relaxing in front of some Netflix or Prime Video shows, the Asus laptop might be the better option.
We haven't mentioned battery life yet, but both these Chromebooks are going to provide you respectable all-day battery life. If you take either the HP or the Asus out for an entire day then you're going to need to provide them a recharge when you get back in the evening, but that's par for the course these days. The HP might last just a touch longer on a single charge, but there's not much in it at all.
When it comes to pricing, you can consult the widgets embedded on this page for the most up-to-date deals online, but typically speaking – and remembering that both laptops are available in a choice of configurations – you're going to be paying significantly more for the HP Pro C640 Chromebook. With top-tier components inside, the HP model can hit four figures in terms of price, while the Asus C523 Chromebook is closer to the £300 mark.
That's a big jump in pricing, especially when you consider that both these laptops are running the same Chrome OS software. While the extra performance, premium materials and extra features of the HP Pro C640 Chromebook are going to be enough to tempt some buyers who want the best that Chromebooks can offer right now, we think a lot of people will also be tempted by the affordability and quality of the Asus C523 Chromebook.

In a world rocked by COVID-19, the role of Information Technology Decision Makers (ITDM) quickly became central to hybrid work environments, according to a accurate poll of 100 Canadian enterprise ITDMs and 500 office workers.
During the pandemic, many members of the Canadian workforce suddenly found their homes doubling as offices. In this new environment, 34 per cent of office workers reported that their IT department had saved the day for them countless times. Sixty-seven per cent equated their IT team with the qualities of superheroes for facilitating a seamless transition to hybrid working, while 43 per cent said remote work would not have been possible without them.
“The shift to hybrid work is just one of the many ways that demonstrates the true importance of ITDMs and CIOs,” said Mary Ann Yule, President and CEO of HP Canada. “Their flexibility and creative problem-solving have never been more important to an organization’s long-term success.”
Despite the essential role ITDMs are playing, they don’t feel well supported. A accurate survey of Canadian ITDMs sheds light on this. The key findings from the Morning Consult report commissioned by HP are below.
Most ITDMs reported that their roles have continually changed to meet the needs of employees working from home. More than half the IT professionals HP surveyed felt they were being asked to do things beyond the scope of their original roles. Approximately 75 per cent said they had to learn new skills to keep employees cyber-secure and connected. Among the skills reported, the most common were developing new cybersecurity solutions (67 per cent), honing cross-team collaboration skills (58 per cent) and developing new, customizable solutions to meet novel employee needs (43 per cent).
WHAT KEEPS THEM UP AT NIGHT
According to a accurate report, more than 85 per cent of Canadian organizations experienced at least one cyberattack in 2021. Privacy and security continue to be a primary concern for ITDMs yet only 41 per cent of the survey respondents said they are aware of what their printers are doing to protect their company’s data. When prompted, ITDMs most often cited their printers’ internet connection as a source of vulnerability, as well as the lack of oversight of the activities of remote employees.
Interestingly, remote workers are missing access to their office printer. When asked to rank what they miss most about working in the office, ITDMs deemed access to a printer to be even more important than perks such as happy hour with colleagues (57 per cent) and free lunch (59 per cent).
“As many employees face going back to the office on a flexible basis, IT teams are now being entrusted with the next major task: retrofitting office technology systems to manage a distributed workforce,” said Yule. “With increased concern around privacy and security, it is essential to find products that are secure by design including hardware-enforced endpoint security software, and security services to protect employees, partners and customers from growing cyber threats.”
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A ‘THANK YOU’
The majority of Canadian ITDMs surveyed said they felt rewarded for their efforts during the pandemic and beyond. Fifty-two per cent reported having a greater say in the future of their organization, as well as feeling valued by the company. On the flip side, 37 per cent of the survey respondents feel their increased workload went unrecognized.
“Celebrating the contributions and recognizing the accomplishments of others boosts team morale and well-being,” said Yule. “It is crucial to support the efforts ITDMs have made during the last few years by not only providing support but acknowledging that it hasn’t been easy for them.”
The findings in the survey will be a key consideration for organizations as they continue to navigate this new world of work. With hybrid work policies evolving daily, Canadian ITDMs will continue to take on more responsibilities in designing a solution for building secure, flexible, work environments.

Small businesses often want the protection that a trained security staff can offer. Companies may need experienced security guards to protect their real estate, equipment and personnel from threats such as burglary, assault and vandalism. These companies can choose either to develop their own proprietary security staff or sign a contract with a security agency. Each option has its advantages as well as its drawbacks.
